How many motors does it have? 1 per blade? I'd check to make sure there are no loose connections so that the motor is getting power. Being electric, there could be something wrong with the brushes or armature in the motor itself. Check with the manufacture, I'm sure they have a customer service dept, or a local hobbyshop that handle r/c stuff, maybe they can help.

Maybe the drive shaft to the upper rotor is broken or there is something wrong with a cog. Lose some teeth on the cog maybe?

you might find why it is jaming up and be able to unjam it, it might have just come off a spline or jumped a cog

The lightning Fighter used to leak full like a sieve, we used to think the one reason the damn thing burnt fuel at such a phenomonal rate ( 15 mins total fuel load in full burner ) was to use the stuff before it leaked out of the wings.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
